About the event
Although the holiday season can be filled with joyful celebrations, sometimes
they an bring up our heartaches. Whether you have a fresh grief or an older scar
that is activated by this season, this service is designed
for you. Having a place to express our sadness and acknowledge the melancholy
parts of this time of year is important.
We live in troubled times. Grief can come from a variety of sources. Feeling overwhelmed
by societal distress, being disowned by a family member, experiencing
the loss of employment, watching a loved one decline in physical or mental capacity,
feeling distant from God — these are just a few examples. If grief in any
form is rising up in you, this service of shadow and longing is for you.
Come. Express your sorrow. Shed your tears.
Allow the Spirit of the Coming One to wash your wounds.
All are welcome.
